> In reply to krish @ 2014-04-03 12:24 from sGPU - click to readI purchased q5 recently and really unhappy. The simplicity my earlier BBs had, which I used for 7 years is no longer there. It has two passwords, copying phone number from contacts is a big pain, calling from called numbers just won't work at times, no shortcut keys like side keys. I would suggest you speak to your friends who have similar use as yours, see the model before buying.

However you can download android apps on to it.

Cheers!!

> In reply to law_ren22 @ 2014-03-28 03:42 from wYKj - click to readWell you are right the Q5 & Q10 have the simillar auto brightness feature and if I am not mistaken even the Z10 has the same auto brightness feature.

I guess BB has constructed BB OS 10 without the option to turn off auto brightness.

But it would be good if we were given the option to turn on or off the auto brightness.

Anyways, have a nice weekend.

Cheers!!

> In reply to Johnny @ 2014-03-27 16:30 from vGjR - click to readThanks for the feedback. this concerns me alot since i do have astigmatism and it hurts my eyes and gives me a headache. I used to have a Q10 and the screen display was terrible. Gave me migraines and headaches because of the auto brightness feature. Was hoping there wasn't any dimming effect at low light with this Q5. Apparently, it is similar to the Q10. Deal breaker for me.

> In reply to law_ren22 @ 2014-03-27 03:28 from thcL - click to readYes the auto brightness causes the phone screen to dim when in low light.

Many people have complained about reading difficulty due to this since you cannot turn off the auto brightness.

What BB has done with their latest OS update 10.2 is that they have introduced an option called white balance, stating that you can adjust the screen from Cool White to Warm White, but when you move the slider towards the left the screen is blueish white and when you move the slider towards the right, the screen is yellowish white, as if you have an amoledyellowish screen. So my slider moving from left to right is 40%.

Hope this helps, otherwise visit a Store to check out the demo before you purchase the device.

Cheers!!
